Hey rob -

The feeling is mutual....

The Abbey quote wasn't a perfect fit but close enough.

I for the life of me can't figure out why some in this happy, dysfunctional collection of misfits we call the Grateful Dead forum community feel the need to isolate themselves.

Enjoy your 4th and celebrate the day those damned colonists cut the apron strings and left home.

Hey Mando--just chiming in to say "hello" as we haven't crossed paths with my reduction in posting of late, but this little thread, and those replies above to the doom and gloom component, remind me of just how much a number of us here share, and how even "newbies" can join in and relatively quickly establish themselves...

But most of all, your Abbey quote caught my attn, as he is one of my fav personalities of all the movie of his first book (Brave Cowboy = Lonely are the Brave movie), and his ecological rants and raves, esp anti-grazing here in the SW. Loved seeing him speak, and hard to believe it's over 20 yrs now since he passed...and I think you got it right, as this is the one I've read:

"...Say what you like about my bloody murderous government,' I says, 'but don't insult me poor bleedin' country..."
